SMART PHONE PAYMENT PILOT STARTING WITH SEVERAL LEWES BUSINESSES IN FEBRUARY 2016

A. This serves as one of the important stepping stones to learn about and prove the provisional survey insights and will help us to achieve a grounded and confident design and investment case for an Electronic Lewes Pound with a potential launch in 2017 (when the main underlying new ESCU banking platform is expected to be up and running).

B. The smartphone payment pilot will be in £ sterling but is a ready secure solution that is expected to help local businesses and residents immediately. It is a unique opportunity for everyone living, visiting and or working to try it out and enjoy a new secure, fun, super-fast and rewarding way of supporting and paying at some of your favourite Lewes Businesses.

C. Who can take part?

—everyone with a smartphone can take part (iPhone or and Android based internet connected phone).
